About me

When you're ready to address your future needs and those of your family and other loved ones, you need the guidance and experience of a legal professional who appreciates that your needs are unique.  With elder law, estate planning and special needs law, you need someone you can talk to and trust, who will listen attentively and then explain your legal options in easy-to-understand language.


For more than 30 years, Beth Polner Abrahams, Esq. has provided personalized legal representation to families, seniors and persons with disabilities, and look forward to working with you. 

Her law firm creates and integrates timely and personalized strategies for elder law planning, including Medicaid applications, special needs trusts and 17A guardianship legal proceedings, and estate and tax planning, always addressing your lifestyle and family legal needs.  She never delivers off-the-shelf 'cookie-cutter' legal advice and forms.


Ms. Polner Abrahams is a member of the New York State, Nassau and Suffolk Bar Associations.  She served as past chair of the Nassau County Bar Association Elder Law Committee, and is current co-chair of the Mediation Committee of the NYS Bar Elder Law and Special Needs Section.  She serves on several advisory boards of nonprofits on Long Island.  Ms. Polner Abrahams has lectured widely for libraries, educational organizations, and has published articles on special needs trusts, guardianship proceedings and elder law.  Her quarterly newsletter, The Polner Abrahams Report, is available at no charge.
